Our Scholarship Award Programme celebrates and rewards excellence from existing and new pupils, currently in Year 5.
Our Scholarship programme provides opportunities for children of high academic ability, outstanding conduct and good all round potential to achieve, and as such, we would expect that only children working towards the top end of their year group will apply.
These awards apply to pupils currently in Year 5 and take effect from Year 6 in the following academic year, starting in September.
Four categories of award are available for those applying for Year 6 scholarships:
The candidate must have achieved a consistently high academic profile, with excellent grades predicted at CE or a predicted scholarship class place.
In addition to a strong academic profile, the candidate must show leadership, talent and
commitment in two or more of the following areas: Art, Drama, Music, Public Speaking, Sport or Technology. The candidate must be committed to supporting the school in performances and extra-curricular events and show enthusiasm, talent and commitment for two or more of these areas of school life.
The candidate must have a high grade of achievement in two or more instruments, one of which may be voice, and must show a full commitment to the extra-curricular musical life of the school.
The candidate must have considerable ability in two or more of the major sports and would be expected to act as an example to others in all aspects of school life. Top club or county standard would be expected in at least one of these sports.

The Scholarship Tests will be held on Friday 9 February 2018.
